I purchased several copies and gave some away as gifts. One person who has already completed the book has told me how good the book was and is waiting on me to complete reading the book. I can tell you from what I have read this book is awesome and entertaining. As Marin, mother and sister-in-law are, well you will have to read to see.... enjoy I sure am... Well back to reading. Can't wait to have a book discussion with this one.
Redemption is Possible Dec 9, 2009
Redemption brought me to tears. The characters are amazing, they are real and relatable. I would love to see this book become a movie. As I read the story between Marin and Warner I felt their pain and their love for one another. I love that the religious aspect is woven all throughout the story. I would love for this author to continue with these characters in a second book that will continue with their life stories. Jacquelin Thomas did a beautiful job writing Redemption

This book is based on a true story in the Bible. Eye opening, and thought provoking, recommend reading it to find out what book of the Bible is based on.

host a book review party!!! After reading "Redemption," I wanted all of my friends and family to read it. Having a love for entertaining, I then thought that this would be an excellent book to discuss over good food and drinks. Therefore, I purchased eight copies (I had two copies on hand) and distributed them to ten people and invited them to my house on August 15th for a discussion party. What an AWESOME experience. There was such excitement in the air!!! Everyone had some good discussion points and some lessons learned. Thank you Jacquelin for providing an excellent read. Thank you this site for having the books on hand and making it easy for me to purchase them. I highly recommend this book to other book clubs.
